DOZENS of people watched the Royal Marines in action as part of a D-Day commemoration event.

The Marines’ unarmed combat and zip wire display teams put on a show for veterans and youngsters at the Royal Marines Museum, to mark the 67th anniversary of the Normandy Landings.

And along with the displays of high-wire daring, and combat exercises, the Eastney Road museum laid on a host of activities free of charge.

Deputy front-of-house manager Sally Pennick said: ‘The weather was a little against us, but people had a great time.

‘We had a children’s tent with drawing and colouring, a climbing wall, and the whole museum was dedicated to D-Day.

‘It’s important to have events like this because it keeps people aware of what happened in the past, and keeps them in touch with what’s happening today.

‘We’re pleased it went so well.’
